Kottambari /Coriander/Cilantro Chutney

The cooking bug has bit me again, this time I am learning from my father. He was brought up in Northern Part of Karnataka known as Bayaluseeme and the dishes are unique and tasty. He has a very healthy meal habit and its usually jolada rotti with various accompaniment dishes.

Today he taught me a very easy coriander chutney which goes very well with Jolada rotti/ dry ones at that.

Here is the recipe

Its one of the most easiest chutneys ever .

Grind together to a fine paste.

Chopped coriander   :  1 cup
Salt                           : to taste
Jaggery                      :  1 Tbsp
Tamarind                   : to taste
Red chillies                 : 4 to 5

Heat 1 tbsp oil . When its hot add mustard seeds ( 1/4 tsp), Jeera (1/4 tsp), curry leaves, bengalgram dhal (1/4 tsp) and a pinch of asafoetida. Add this seasoning to the above chutney and enjoy with chapatis or Jowar rotis.

Try this super easy chutney and let me know. Hoping I will continue with more yummy dishes like agasi pudi, kalu palya and goddu saru too. Onion chutney is already in the blog for you to try.
